Expect the Unexpected
As the Feature report in this issue by Lyndon LaRouche shows, the leading enemy of humanity today is the British Empire (the "Brutish Empire"). At no time in memory, since the death of Franklin Roosevelt, has the British Empire faced the existential challenge it faces today.
Regardless of the outcome of the U.S. Presidential elections, the collapse of the present global financial and monetary system is unstoppable, unless there is a fundamental change in policy, and LaRouche's New Bretton Woods policy is fully implemented. Governments and leading political circles around the globe are considering the LaRouche alternative, as never before.
On Nov. 15, the heads of state of the Group of 20 leading nations from around the world will gather in Washington, D.C., for the first of what are expected to be a series of conferences, to consider a New Bretton Woods. Already, a number of leading participants in that conferenceItaly and France, to name just twoare seriously promoting the need to return to a fixed-exchange-rate system, to wipe out the role of speculators in world currency arrangements.
While the outcome of the Nov. 15 and subsequent conferences is unknown, the mere fact that LaRouche's proposal is on the table, has the City of London financier oligarchy running scared.
For this reason, expect the unexpected. During the Summer of 2008, working through British Foreign Office mandarin Sir Mark Malloch-Brown and BFO agent George Soros, London came close to triggering a full-scale war between Russia and NATO, over the Caucasus. That situation remains explosive, and U.S.-Russian cooperation, the anchor of any successful New Bretton Woods agreement, has been set back by the British-engineered conflict.
Working closely with factions in Saudi Arabia, the British are attempting to engineer a crisis between Syria and Lebanon, at precisely the moment when efforts are underway to achieve a Syria-Israel-Lebanon peace agreement. Saudi-funded Salafi insurgents are targeting Alawites and Shi'ites in northern Lebanon, and across the border in Syria. The London scheme is to engineer a cross-border crisis between Syria and Lebanon, and once again, blow up the eastern Mediterranean.
In South Asia, the conflict along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border continues to intensify, and London is flagrantly promoting a Taliban return to power in Kabul, a certain trigger for a new "Great Game" confrontation, engulfing Central and South Asia.
U.S. intelligence specialists are also pointing to the danger of a "new 9/11" attack, sometime during the transitional period, extending through the end of 2009, whoever winds up as the next White House occupant. Such a direct assault on the U.S.A. clearly suits London's chaos agenda. As some senior U.S. intelligence figures know, there was a significant "Al Yamamah" factor in the attacks of eight years ago, and the Anglo-Saudi intelligence apparatus, associated with the BAE oil-for-weapons scheme, that had a hand in that action, remains intact to this day, thanks, in large measure, to a concerted Bush Administration coverup, and worse.
In times of great turmoil, when the very existence of the present Anglo-Dutch Liberal system is in jeopardy, London historically resorts to war, as the ultimate weapon in their grasp for continued oligarchical power.
These are the lessons of history, and they apply today, more than at any time in our lives.
